New privacy changes to show up in Insider builds in the coming weeks

Windows privacy

With Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft made significant enhancements to the Windows privacy that put you in more control to make informed decisions about your privacy.

Those enhancements included improving in-product information, updates to the Microsoft privacy statement, and publishing more information about the diagnostic data we collect.

According to the data collected by the Microsoft, 71% of users have selected Full diagnostics data which helps engineers at Microsoft to fix and improve Microsoft products.

While your direct feedback like, “The privacy settings added to clean installs are a boon for the privacy minded,” and “Very well done,” is great to hear, we know there is still work to do to meet and anticipate the expectations across our diverse customer base and provide you with the best privacy experience possible.

Microsoft also introduced a new web-based privacy dashboard allowing you to see and control your activity data across multiple Microsoft services. More than 23 million people have visited since its release in January 2017.

If you are a Windows Insider, you can expect to see some of the privacy changes showing up in Insider builds in the coming weeks.
